Grind On The Go Showcases Sustainability Practices through Partnership with Black Girls Cook

 Grind On The Go and Black Girls Cook announced their partnership to educate people on the use of coffee grounds for sustainable practices like urban and micro gardening.

Grind On The Go will provide used coffee grounds for the edible gardening component of Black Girls Cook. Introduced in the Spring of 2018, the Black Girls Cook Edible Garden Program is a hands-on gardening experience that teaches adolescent Black girls about sustainable practices and environmental stewardship by observing the life cycles of edible plants.

As a woman entrepreneur, Yates understands the impact of collaborations across women-led organizations.

"This partnership is another way Grind On The Go supports organizations with women, particularly Black women, in leadership positions. A great cup of coffee fuels fellowship and collaboration - in this case, the leftover grinds are the fuel," states Yates.

For Black Girls Cook Executive Director, Chef Nichole Mooney, collaborations with small businesses like Grind On The Go have been an essential part of Black Girls Cook since its start.

"We have always strategically collaborated with Black Woman-owned businesses & non-profit organizations to provide additional hands-on education to our programming. These collaborations give our girls the opportunity to meet and learn from successful Black Women business owners in the culinary and urban farming industries. I want them to see that if they decide to pursue a career in one of these industries, that it's attainable because of the representation they have seen in our programs," says Mooney.

About Grind On The Go
Most people define "grinding" differently. For Grind on the Go's founder, Brittany, she's all about pursuing your dreams and designing a life you love. And how that looks is different for each person.

Created from her love and passion for pursuing her goals, Grind On The Go pays homage to the person working early mornings and late nights to achieve their goals. From the mom making sure she has a safe and loving environment for her kids. To the grad school student working two jobs yet still making time to submit papers. She sees you, and she identifies with you. And Grind on the Go is a way to celebrate all you do.

Grind on the Go is more than a coffee company. It's a community and a marriage of two grinds: coffee and hard work.
